Space Crazy! Free Printable Space Characters.

Space Crazy - free printable space characters to download print and play with!

All week my small boy had been asking me for a ‘face-man’. After a lot of questioning and frustrated repetitions of his ‘face-man’ request I finally figured out out… he wanted a ‘spaceman’!

Of course I couldn’t stop at just a ‘face-man’ I had to make him a rocket, and an alien friend and a UFO and some planets and stars as well.

We made some ‘space rocks’ by scrunching up some foil which was loads of fun!

We added a little glitter to some playdough to make it all cosmic and ‘spacey’.

The spaceman, alien, rocket and UFO all come with little semi circular pieces to slot into the bottom to help them stand up on their own. You’ll need to print them on heavy card or laminate them, then cut a small slit at the bottom of each character and a matching slit in the top of the semi-circle and slot them together.

If you love play dough as much as my kids do you might like to check out Cathy from Nurture Store’s Homemade Play Dough Recipe book (affiliate link – I get a percentage of sales if you buy via these link). It’s full of fabulous, doable, home made play dough recipes and ideas. I think Cathy’s cloud dough recipe would be lots of fun for a space play scene… you could make black sparkly cloud dough!

    These are just too cute!! Will definitely be printing them out for my little men, I’m sure they will love them.

    Oh and “face-man” is hilarious. A few days ago my 2yr old kept on saying “watch little night time” and I was so confused until I realized he meant “watch Little Einsteins” LOL

    Hehe, I can relate to your frustration in deciphering your sons request. My little boy wanted help finding his naught and chip (astronaut and space ship). This is right up his alley! Thanks for sharing :) I’ve repinned from you :)
